  1. Kindra would like to have more than $1500 in her savings account. Homework Help ✎

    1. If she starts with $61 in her savings account, write an inequality to show how much she wants to have.

    2. How much does Kindra need to save?

Given the amount Kindra already has and the amount she wants to have, create an inequality with a variable to represent this problem.

x + $61 > $1500
If Kindra wants more than $1500, then x represents how much she needs to save.

Solve the inequality you found above by isolating x. What do you get?
